With the Toyota Highlander currently the No. 1 retail midsize SUV for a 7th year in a row, the hybrid variant for the 2023 model year gives drivers even more reasons to choose the versatile favorite for their next vehicle.

Here are five things to know about the efficient, stylish 2023 Highlander Hybrid.

More Miles, More Fun

Planning that weekend getaway? The Highlander Hybrid has impressive fuel efficiency, and is ready to take drivers on any adventure, with EPA-estimated up to 36 mpg city and up to 35 mpg highway ratings.

Room To Stretch Out

Designed with convenience in mind, the 2023 Highlander Hybrid has a battery pack that’s installed under the second-row seats, so it doesn’t take away any passenger or cargo space for stretching out or packing up. What’s more, this roomy hybrid SUV offers 84.3/48.4/16.0 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the front-, second- and third-row seats, respectively.

Electronic On-Demand AWD 

The 2023 Highlander Hybrid’s All-Wheel-Drive system isn’t just powerful, it’s also smart. The unique available Electronic On-Demand AWD uses a dedicated electric drive motor to automatically supply power to the rear wheels for instant traction when needed. This way, the driver can focus on the road during inclement weather or unexpected driving conditions.

Time To Power Up

Everyone can stay connected in the 2023 Highlander Hybrid. The vehicle includes two 120V outlets — powered by the 1500W inverter — located at the bottom rear of the center console and in the luggage area. Two inverters are unique to the hybrid, coming standard in the Bronze Edition and Limited and Platinum grades.

Drive in Style

The Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition is all about style. The special edition is full of eye-catching details like 18-inch bronze-finished wheels, mid-century-inspired embossed fabric seat inserts and bronze-colored stitching throughout the cabin.

Miles ahead of expectations, the 2023 Toyota Highlander Hybrid makes the most of what everyone wants to do, on or off the beaten path.
